This week in Android: Our CES 2019 Awards!
This week was all about CES and appropriately most of our top stories from this week came from that event. We gave out our Best of CES Awards, awarded the best audio devices, and even rounded up the best smartwatches and wearables. We saw expansion of Google Assistant in both hardware and software, too.
Outside of the trade show, we got news of Samsung’s latest flagship coming earlier than we expected. February 20 is the official date of Samsung Unpacked when we expect to see the Galaxy S10, and maybe even a folding phone! Speaking of Samsung, the iPhone turned 12 this week, and we compared it to our Best of Android 2018 winner, the Note 9, to see how far we’ve come.
Add to that a rugged phone, a gaming phone, and a chat with OnePlus, and you have yourself a pretty full week!
Here are your top stories for the week
